Cannes Lions 2019

Every year, Cannes Lions explores the value of creativity in branded communications: from product and service development to the creative strategy, execution and impact. The five-day festival and awards provides the industry with access to new ideas, pioneering consumer research and emerging technologies which will help make and shape popular culture. Visit for more.


The House of PR is the independent hub for PR professionals at Cannes Lions to meet, work, relax, learn, and have fun.

Attracting the biggest names in PR throughout the week, it’s also a perfect cost-effective way to host your own events, workshops, seminars, drinks receptions, or showcase work and technology in the heart of the festival.

This year we have a space that is five times bigger, allowing for larger events, displays, and workshops. ICCO is an official sponsor of Cannes Lions giving the House of PR sponsors exposure, credibility, and a direct connection with the competition.

Young PR Lions competition

ICCO is again the proud official sponsor of Cannes Young PR Lions, the most robust, challenging international competition of its kind. If you are aged 30 or younger, enter your location competition and qualify for the final competition held live at festival.

The Challenge – you’ll be briefed by a charity or NGO about their PR situation. Then you’ll have just 24 hours to shape a PR strategy that demonstrates your creative process, showing how the idea would connect with the organisation’s brand values, how it engages with the public, and builds relations with relevant stakeholders.

Find your local competition here.
